  • Wizard World
    Facilitating the fan-delighting collision of comic-book universes and intergalactic heroes, Wizard World organizes Comic Cons and pop-culture conventions across the continent. At each event, stars from the silver screen set down roots in booths across the convention floor, wielding markers for autographs and their photo-op-ready smiles. Past guests have run the gamut from William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, and the cast of AMC?s The Walking Dead. Away from the crowds, stars also participate in talks and Q&A panels as part of the event?s programming. Along with beloved actors, Wizard World?s conventions grant guests a chance to interact with writers and artists as well as partake in activities such as gaming tournaments and costume contests.

  • DuPage County Fair
    The DuPage County Fair takes place July 22-26. Tens of thousands of people flock to the DuPage County Fair each summer—in fact, the event drew over 100,000 attendees in 2014 alone. That popularity isn't due to a single event or attraction, but rather to the sum of a multi-day festival showcasing agriculture and celebrating summertime fun as a whole. The Axe Women Loggers of Maine will be competing all five days in Lumberjack shows, and the Willis Clan will be performing on Thursday evening. There will be roving acts, 4-H exhibits, variety of musical entertainment, animal shows, and pig races all included with admission. Saturday the International Pro Rodeo Association will host two sanctioned events. Walking the long line of vendors takes attendees past familiar fair foods, and a craft beer tent with over 40 craft beers. On Sunday there are two demolition derbies. These are just some of the events that make the DuPage County Fair a great destination for families.
